Why Mindfulness Matters—and Why It Might Matter to You!

According to a report released by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2018, levels of anxiety among American adults have exploded in the last two years. Between 2017 and 2018 alone, the APA noted a five percent increase in anxious behaviors.

But what’s driving this flare-up of anxious people, and how can we deal with it?

“At this particular juncture in time, there’s a real sense of uncertainty about where humanity is going,” says Jon Kabat-Zinn, cofounder of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

After 40 years of treating stress disorders with mindfulness-based techniques, he is a premier authority on this increasingly pressing subject.

In the following FREE video, “Why Mindfulness Matters—and Why It Might Matter to You!” Jon explains his techniques and how they can help you deal more skillfully with a rapidly changing world:

How Living in the Present Moment Can Change Your Life

How present are you right now? Are you really here? Or is your mind off somewhere else, caught up in thinking and emotions, the past and the future, without being fully aware of that fact? It is all too easy to live focused on the next item on our never-ending to-do list, hoping to get it checked off and feel good for however long that feeling will last. But when, if ever, do we allow ourselves to simply drop into the present moment as it is—to practice residing in awareness, in the domain of being, or if you will, in the domain of “non-doing”? This rotation in consciousness can catalyze an entirely different way of being and acting in the world.

The miracle of mindfulness is that it reconnects us to the inherent richness of life inwardly and outwardly—a richness of embodied wakefulness and possibilities that can only be found and inhabited in this timeless moment we call “now.”

Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, is a Professor of Medicine Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he founded the world-renowned MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) Clinic in 1979. He also founded the medical school’s Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society. He is the author of 14 books in print in over 40 languages, including the bestsellers Full Catastrophe Living; Wherever You Go, There You Are; Coming to Our Senses; and Mindfulness for Beginners. His work has contributed to a growing movement of mindfulness into mainstream institutions such as medicine, psychology, health care, neuroscience, K-12 schools, higher education, business, social justice, criminal justice, prisons, the law, technology, government, and professional sports.

Your nighttime dreams play a crucial role throughout your life, nudging you to reclaim the parts of yourself you’ve forgotten or seemed to have lost…

Your dreams are the perfect vehicle for exploring deeply personal questions that can guide you out of darkness and into the light, helping you heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Questions like…

What do you want to change in your life?
What do you need to let go of?
What do you wish you could have back?

Your dreams can also inspire you to reimagine what you’ve accepted as “reality,” and to evolve and be reborn, again and again, guiding you into the expansive, passionate, and joy-filled life you were meant to live.

Open to the treasures that darkness — including scary dreams — holds for you

On Saturday, March 21, celebrated dream shaman Robert Moss will help you discover dreams and myths of rebirth, the symbols of renewal that may appear in your dreams, and the life-transforming treasures that darkness — including scary dreams — holds for you.

You can register here for Shamanic Dreaming With Goddesses of Rebirth: Journey from Darkness With the Sun Goddess Amaterasu Into Your Larger Life:

In this playful, soul-illuminating mini-workshop, you’ll dive into the magic of mythic realms…

Mythologist Joseph Campbell wrote: “A dream is a personal experience of that deep dark ground that is the support of our conscious lives, and a myth is society’s dream. The myth is the public dream and the dream is the private myth.”

These “public dreams” are where powerful archetypes of Gods and Goddesses dwell, ripe with potent energies that can also help us remember our own bigger story — and to better navigate our life transitions and challenges.

During this complimentary hour-long event, you’ll:

  • Discover that powerful mythic archetypes come seeking you in your dreams and the play of synchronicity, creating a shimmer effect in your world and opening you to new possibilities
  • Learn dream symbols of rebirth and transformation — wisdom for releasing the old, crossing a threshold, and bringing something new into your life
  • Discover how scary dreams, even nightmares, show you things you need to know in forms you can learn to work with — and when you do that and recover your sense of humor, deep healing and life guidance become available
  • Learn how Persephone — the goddess of spring and guide of souls on both sides — can teach you to bring treasures back from the darkness
  • Experience a journey from the darkness of a current challenge to the light and power of your Greater Self, in the footsteps of the Sun Goddess Amaterasu

I invite you to join me for this special hour to discover how to use your dreams as portals to places of healing, initiation, and transformation in a deeper reality.

Robert is one of the world’s most respected and beloved dream experts. He’s inspired hundreds of thousands around the world with his 20+ books and his workshops during a lifetime of teaching.

During this free virtual event, Robert will help you experience the regenerative energies of the Goddesses rising, to be reborn along with them into your own living myth filled with courage, passion, and healing for your life.

Register now and even if you can’t attend live, you’ll receive a downloadable replay later.
